Here's the recipe for the lasagna I made tonight/today/all day.
Homemade pasta and three sauces later, I was ready to assemble. Really, it took all day. First the tomato sauce; then the Bolognese sauce (had to simmer in the oven 2 hours); then the bechamel. The ricotta had to be placed in cheesecloth and drained for four hours...
I told Charlie it was going to be either the best lasagna or the biggest waste of time. It was great, but I was way too tired to enjoy it. I worked in the yard while sauces were simmering and right now I'm exhausted. I can barely lift the Advil to my lips.
This is not to say that it's not worth it. Spread it out. Use your freezer. Enlist your friends. A warning: it is very different and not a typical lasagna at all. Don't bother with side dishes, don't feel compelled to have salad or something green, forget the bread, even. The lasagna is enough, but for heaven's sake serve it with a big glass of red wine.
